It's not often you can be a part of something from the very beginning. Well here’s your chance.
Sunday night we are all about to witness the launch of LGND, an environmentally conscious community of artists and collectors about to change the NFT collecting game. And they are going big on the inaugural release with iconic artist, James Jean. The new collection of work, titled “To the Muses,” features a handful of new images with some bold themes, bright colors, and clever animations.
Let me just say that I can’t get enough of James Jean. I first fell in love with his work when it gorgeously graced the covers of the epic fantasy comic Fables. Since then I have been fortunate to see his paintings, collect limited edition prints, and even frantically hunt for an original post-it note size drawing in a sea of hundreds of other post-it notes. Maybe you’re seeing his work for the first time, maybe you’ve seen it on the billboards above Sawtelle Japantown in Los Angeles, or maybe you haven’t seen it in a long time, but possibly recognize it from the best selling My Chemical Romance album The Black Parade. Either way you cut it, the art is memorable and deserves a spot on your virtual shelf.
And if this inaugural launch hasn’t peaked your interest enough, the #youareLGND movement has amassed quite an impressive lineup for the not too distant future. Michael Reeder, Tomer and Asaf Hanuka, soey milk, Ryan Travis Christian, and the notorious Mike Mitchell have all joined the eco-friendly platform. And that’s just a literal fraction of the talent planning to release NFTs in the comings weeks. Basically what I'm saying is LGND is the new curated art platform to watch and you don’t want to miss it.
Make sure you sign up for a LGND account, link your WAX wallet, and get your F5 key ready. "To the Muses" features two, 12-minute-timed editions, limited editions, and a one of one auction. It all starts May 16, 2021 at 8:00 PM EST.
